Swan Haven School Programs

New in 2017 - Yukon Wildlife Preserve will be delivering Swan Haven School Programs on behalf of Environment Yukon's Wildlife Viewing Program.  We'll be offering the same great programs at the Swan Haven Interpretive Centre!

School programs have always been a large part of spring activities at Swan Haven. Hundreds of school children make the trip with their classes to participate in hands-on activities and games, in a spectacular outdoor classroom. 




Spring 2017:

April 3rd – April 25th

Why Bring my class to Swan Haven?

Students are treated to the sights and sounds of spring, complemented by fun activities geared towards appreciating and understanding the spring migration of swans and other birds as they rest and feed at M'Clintock Bay. The hands-on activities delivered by Yukon Wildlife Preserve programmers teaches students about birds and habitats.

Teachers can brings classes from grades 2 to 6. To ensure a high quality experience, the maximum number of students is 48 (2 classes maximum).
